Abstract:Two methods for kinematic sensing in a hand-held dynamometer using accelerometers and gyroscopes are presented. The first method integrates the angular velocity signal from the gyroscope, after calibration of gyroscope offset and joint angle from a static period immediately preceding each measurement. The second method estimates tangential and radial accelerations, enabling the estimation of the gravity components in the accelerometer signals under dynamic conditions, and thus angle reconstruction. The second method appeared to perform best in preliminary tests
